Astoria, Oregon ~ April 5, 2011
It's unusual to see the pilot boat Columbia working on the part of the river near downtown Astoria. Usually we see the smaller green and white Arrow 2. The Columbia is made for the harsher conditions of the ocean. You can read about the various pilot boats by clicking on the labels below. That beautiful blue color is belongs to one of my favorite shipping lines, Honda, and you can guess what's inside. This particular ship's name is Celestial Wing.
